Cinéma sous les étoiles is an outdoor social and political documentary film festival, entirely free of charge and open to all. This major event takes place every year in many parks and outdoor venues throughout Montreal and surrounding areas. The public can thus discover free of charge quality works on local and international current events in the heart of their neighbourhood.

HI Canada has decided to join this initiative to present documentaries on issues related to its mission to Quebec and Montreal audiences. For this 2019 edition, HI will co-present:

Education, girls, disability: HI committed to solve the equation of exclusion

Following a study conducted in 2019 in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger, and at the occasion of the International Day of Education on January 24, Humanity & Inclusion (HI) alerts Sahel countries’ governments and international cooperation organisations on the exclusion of girls with disabilities from school. Worldwide, women with disabilities are three times more likely to be illiterate than men without disabilities.

Report: Humanity & Inclusion's Response to Covid-19

When Covid-19 was declared a global pandemic in March 2020, Humanity & Inclusion mobilized its teams to help the most vulnerable people affected by the crisis. Providing emergency response in almost all the countries where Humanity & Inclusion works has been a major challenge, especially since its emergency teams are normally able to focus their efforts on a handful of countries or regions. Humanity & Inclusion therefore provided emergency response and adapted its routine projects to help all those in need.
